State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda


Product Code:




By Steven Luckert and Susan Bachrach 


Product Detail:

A Publication of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
This heavily illustrated large format book is a history of Nazi propaganda based on never-before-published posters, rare photographs, and historical artifacts from the Museum's exhibition. "Propaganda," Adolf Hitler wrote in 1924, "is a truly terrible weapon in the hands of an expert." State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda documents how, in the 1920s and 1930s, the Nazi Party used posters, newspapers, rallies, and the new technologies of radio and film to sway millions with its vision for a new Germany-reinforced by fear-mongering images of state "enemies." These images promoted indifference toward the suffering of neighbors, disguised the regime's genocidal actions, and insidiously incited ordinary people to carry out or tolerate mass violence. It is hoped that a deeper understanding of the complexities of the past may help us respond more effectively to today's propaganda campaigns and biased messages.
